Sailing in Aruba

Set sail for a glorious cruise along Aruba’s scenic coastline.

All along the leeward coast of Aruba, the calm, flat sea and the steady trade winds make sailing an ideal activity to add to your holiday experiences.

One of the most breathtaking perspectives of our island is the view of our stunning beaches from the sea as you sail along our coastline. Aruba’s Palm Beach harbours over a dozen catamarans and sailing boats offering cruises that showcase gorgeous scenery set against the turquoise canvas of the Caribbean Sea. You can take advantage of several unique sailing excursions, including snorkelling cruises, sunset sails, booze cruises and dinner cruises. Most of these excursions feature an open bar (try our Aruba Ariba cocktail!) as well as lunch, snacks or dinner, depending on the time and duration of the cruise.

One of the most unique Caribbean sailing adventures is the sunset cruise Aruba is so fond of. Now don’t get us wrong, sailing in Aruba is an amazing experience at any time of day, but being on a Caribbean sailing cruise as the sun sets and the sky turns pink, purple and orange is absolutely breathtaking. You’ll have the best seat in the house for this amazing sunset show that Mother Nature offers every evening. You haven’t experienced sailing until you’ve tried Aruba sailing.

If you are looking to test out your own sailing skills, Hobie Cats are available for rent, and some water sports operators offer lessons.

The annual Aruba International Regatta features competitors sailing in from neighbouring islands to compete in categories ranging from yachts to Sunfish. As a spectator, it’s great fun to get caught up in the excitement and the fabulous beach parties surrounding the three-day event.
